When you unzip an
.ev3 program, there are many
xml files that are inside. In particular, there is an
xml file produced with the filename extension
.ev3p, which seems to contain program instructions which the EV3 brick can then interpret and execute. I am interested in using these
.ev3p files produced in order to analyze the correctness of programs.
To test this, I created two
.ev3 programs: one which moves forward 3 cycles, one which moves forward 5 cycles. Upon text-comparing their respective
.ev3p files, I found :
in the first file and
in the second file.
However, there are other small, unexplained differences between the respective
.ev3p files. I need to know:
- Is there any documentation that is provided by National Instruments that can give me insight into how these
.ev3pfiles are produced and how they can be interpreted.
